I pay $100/mo for unlimited data and text, 400 mins a month and a billion mins in roll over.

In dallas I had no problems with AT&T as they are HQ'd there, even here in ATL I have no issues with them.

$40 is the cost of tethering for 2 phones anyways. so at least you get something. (free for rooted phones though)

Get used to it though, AT&T will likely follow with a similar plan soon.

They already throttle users around 1GB anyways, down to useless speeds, and to get their they may lie about your data usage. At least Verizon doesn't throttle nearly as much, and when they do it isn't noticeable, and only during peak times when necessary. And no exaggerating usage...

ATT breach of contract (data throttle)

Increased AT&T Throttling?

It'll take more than this for Verizon to reach AT&T's scumbag status.

They used to throttle at 2GB, now 3GB. It's actually quite usable at 3GB and I don't have to worry about overages.

But yeah, AT&T will probably force us relics out now.

80 000 / (14 * 24) = 238
For two weeks you've been downloading an average of 238 mb / hour?

Probably using his phone as a tether, very possible.

I will be purchasing an iPhone 4S with my upgrade before unlimited goes away... sucks I couldn't get an iPhone 5 with unlimited for $250 before the switch. womp. womp.

I want to blow my head off with ATT in downtown Chicago. Too many people packed into such a small area with not enough bandwidth. Unfortunately, that's where I live.

Otherwise, it's great.

Good, that'll free up some extra LTE bandwidth for me for the next 2 years

If you really want Unlimited what's the big deal? Just pay full price for the phone. The difference between a $250 contract price and the $600 full price is less than $15 per month. Just treat it like the unlimited plan is $15 more per month. Am I missing something?

I just checked my vzw online account, and now that i have wifi in my apartment my data usage is down by about 80%

No more constant tethering. Looks like i wouldnt be so bad off without unlimited as long as I have wifi....
